The history of our presence in Belgium

 

The origins of Tractebel in Belgium are rooted in the 19th century (1862). The company is in particular the result of the merger of Tractionel and Electrobel in 1986. From the very beginning, Tractebel played a major role in the energy sector with the design and construction of the nuclear power plants at Doel and Tihange, the first CCGT power station at Drogenbos and the LNG terminal at Zeebrugge.

The company was also from the start very active in the infrastructure sector with the metro network in Antwerp and Brussels, the Sart-Tilman university of Liège, the construction of the Sidmar steel company next to the Ghent–Terneuzen Canal and many other projects.

In 1986, Tractebel became a co-shareholder of the International Marine and Dredging Consultants (IMDC), a company specialized in the fields of dredging, offshore energy, flood risk, waterways, integrated water management, monitoring & environment, coast and estuaries, ports and offshore structures.

In 1995, Tractebel reinforced its participation in the country’s infrastructure sector with the foundation of Technum from the merge of several smaller Flemish agencies. Some important projects such as the Antwerp Mobility Master Plan, the Brussels’ EU Parliament Buildings and the Albert II Dock in the Port of Zeebrugge counted on the expertise of Technum, which was rebranded to Tractebel in 2016.

In short, Tractebel has executed a lot of successful projects in the energy, water and infrastructure sectors for public and private clients. Among the most recent achievements are: initial preparatory phase of the dismantling of the Belgian NPPs Doel 1 & 2 , Long Term Operation of Tihange, Seine-Scheldt Canal Network, Removal of the Hénâ waste tip, EIA Tidal zone and nature reserve ZWIN, Brussels Airport Northern rail connection, Belwind offshore Wind farm, Amercoeur 2 CCGT Repowering 420 MW, 3rd LNG Jetty at Zeebrugge LNG Terminal and Dok Zuid in Antwerp’s Central Park.
